Teens and Screens
audio summit hosted by the Joyful Courage podcast
Self-paced audio summit
Parenting teens is hard!
And this time, we are focused on Teens & Screens. This is for you if you are currently parenting teens. Yep, we all struggle with screen time.
Here are some questions to consider if this is the right offer for you:
- Is your teen spending an excessive of time consuming content through their device?
- Are you concerned about what that content is?
- Do you struggle to set limits that “work”?
- Does your teen get defensive even at the mention of wanting to discuss tech use?
- Are you concerned about gaming?
- Are you worried about the content your kids are posting on IG, TikTok, etc?
- Do you feel like your teen is no longer participating in anything beyond their screens?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Parents all across the land are struggling with navigating the tech waters with their teens. We wonder if we are monitoring too much, not enough, we worry that we aren’t’ creating rules that are useful. Worrying about predators, and cyber bullying, porn, sexting, addiction – we worry…
SO. DAMN. MUCH.
I have zeroed in on five areas that our members of the community identified as critical conversations:
- Teens attachment to tech
- Monitoring and limit setting
- Making sense of gaming
- Tech and the brain
- Communicating with our teens about Social Media content and avoiding online predators

As a licensed attorney, Christy spent nearly twenty years as a criminal prosecutor in one of the nation’s largest prosecutor’s offices handling misdemeanor thefts to homicides and everything in between. In the latter part of her career, Christy specialized in the prosecution of sexually violent predators—the roughly 1% of all sex offenders considered to be so dangerous as to warrant their indefinite confinement.
In that capacity, Christy had the opportunity to read about and speak with these offenders, giving her a unique perspective into what makes them tick and the tactics they frequently use to target victims.
Armed with this information, Christy was thrilled when the opportunity arose to assume ownership of Savvy Parents Safe Kids and has grown the business so that more parents and caregivers can be armed with the information necessary to help keep their children safe.
